4. Change the ‘PHP support (run as)’ to ‘FastCGI Application’.
Switch PHP Handler to PHP-FPM
As technology moves on you may have Nginx & PHP-FPm installed on your Plesk server which is a much faster webserver and PHP handler than Apache and Fastcgi. Using this may potentially make your site significantly faster as long as your web application supports it.
